Westport, CT: Greenwood Press, At first glance this is a very impressive book. Eugene Rasor has compiled a series of historiograph- ical essays and an annotated bibliography covering over three thousand works by and about Winston Churchill. Handled well, this might be a formidable achievement and the author deserves credit for taking on such a huge task.
Unfortunately, the final product is marred by so many errors, omissions, and inconsistencies that its merits are frequently overshadowed. It is not a descriptive bibliography, which collectors might anticipate from the title. The bibliographical portion of the book consists of a single long catalogue of published works listed alphabetically by author, and then arranged alphabetically, rather than chronologically, by title.
All of these works are noted and discussed in the historiographical essays which comprise slightly more than half of the volume. Each one provides a commentary on relevant works by and about Churchill, together with historical background and notes on a wide range of books and articles which do not focus specifically on Churchill.
The Beginning of the Great Game in Asia, Even when a topic does have a clear connection to Churchill, Rasor still rounds out many of his historiographical essays with irrelevant sources. His section on the loss of the Lusitania, for example, notes items such as a reprint of a pamphlet describing the liner and an article by the nautical archaeologist-explorer who located its wreck.
A certain amount of overlapping is to be expected, but this problem is not always handled well. Rasor seems reluctant to list an item more than once, and important works are often not found under all of the relevant headings.
Churchill and Franklin D. Many of these anomalies could have been avoided by proper cross-referencing. There are few important books or articles about Churchill which are missing from this book entirely, but the historiographical section suffers from two other serious problems.
First, the author seldom notes articles that appear in anthologies. Two years ago there was danger. One year ago great new programmes of rearmament, and especially of expansion in the Air, were announced.
What has happened to them? Are they being fulfilled? Are we making up for lost time?
Are we overtaking foreign countries? Dec The armies and air fleets are preparing; in the arsenals and dockyards of Europe the great hammers descend with ceaseless clang.
The heels of millions of soldiers crunch the gravel of the drill grounds. In the aerodromes new machines and new pilots take the air; squadrons form in rapid succession. A stage adaptation written by Churchill and Louis Evan Shipman who had also worked on the stage adaptation of The Crisis debuted in and briefly ran on Broadway in January for eight performances.
